Lunchtime Basketball

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 12:00–1:30 p.m., Gym
Employees from the surrounding business park meet in the gym to play 12-minute games of 5 on 5. It is a perfect way to get some time out of the office environment and burn up some energy before heading back into the world. The games are casual. Scores are not kept on record, so there is no pressure.

Getting your child involved in recreational sports such as soccer, flag football, basketball, or baseball is one of the BEST ways to make new friends, use up excess energy (that’s for you parents), and get started on a path to a happier, healthier life for the body and mind.
